Once again it must be pointed out that locate only operates on file
names. Beagle looks at file contents. They're not interchangeable.

Furthermore, even if you combine one of the grep family of programs with
locate you won't recreate Beagle's capabilities because Beagle extracts
text contents from a variety of file formats even when that textual
content represented in obscure ways.

Look at a PDF file once, there's so much extraneous formatting
information interleaved with the text that only rarely would grep or
other textual search find what you're looking for. The same goes for
PostScript, Word and almost any word-processing or document
distribution format.

There are alternatives to Beagle, but I'm not sure they're any
more "ready for prime-time" than Beagle is.
